Partner Testimonials
The information that we collected with Cortico is so rich. It helps us illuminate data points in a different way, communicating through people's stories and experiences.
Alia Stevenson
Chief Program Officer, Foundation for Black Women's Wellness
Through Cortico, we're able to efficiently and powerfully invite our community of youth around the world to inform our strategic direction. Fora enables us to analyze and amplify youth voices and opinions from around the world in a way that traditional survey instruments and focus groups cannot do.
Asheesh Advani
CEO, Junior Achievement Worldwide
Working with Cortico has provided a new way to share underheard community voices and strengthen our data-driven approach to City decision-making. The Portal tool, in particular, provides a more expansive and transparent way to share what we’ve learned from residents. We heard from residents that they felt heard and valued as participants in the conversation.
Constance Stancil
Director of Neighborhood Improvement Services, City of Durham
Having the ability to use this incredible technology is such a boost for us to think about new ways to report, to identify innovative ways to reach people and connect with new audiences.

As we engage the community and ask for feedback, Fora has been a powerful tool to absorb and understand what residents across Cambridge are looking for in the next City Manager.
Sumbul Siddiqui
Mayor, City of Cambridge, MA
One of the most exciting things about building this program has been the spirit of experimentation we've all had. Branch staff have really embraced figuring out what their intended audience is for this program and getting to know their community in the process.
Erica Parker
Associate Manager of Adult Programming, New York Public Library
Our journalists learning that facilitation skill was huge for us because it helped put community engagement in practice and supported a shift from traditional reporting towards really connecting with communities.
